Clueless Bastards

Dear Amazon,

Your online community design team STILL does not understand how blogging works. “Is this post interesting?” is about the lamest attempt ever to force the review model onto blogging. It simply doesn’t work. Please take away the ratings on blog posts. Authors don’t want it. It’s not helpful. How on earth could this be helpful? You’ve given harassers a way to harass us and not given us the ability to turn off this annoying feature. You don’t understand authors, either! We know people are interested because they post comments, not because they click the weenie “Is this post interesting?” button.

You still need to hire me for online community consultation, by the way.


Maria Alexander
